This collection was based on natural history and its largely inspired by a documentary I’ve seen about Charles Darwin and his natural selection theory. I just thought one day that I could knit and crochet these dresses that I’ve roughly sketched out. I thought that by combining the crochet and knitting stitches together in a certain way, an organic, creature-like dress would emerge. I chose this particular colourway as it reminded me of tropical waters teeming with all sorts of life forms.

I am a self-taught designer-maker based in the U.K. I am interested in the inherent beauty of textiles and paper. I describe myself as a peripatetic maker of things, given my number of skills in crafts. Having used paper and textiles longest, these tend to feature on my works quite heavily.
